Saturday: Halloween Hip Hop Night @ Legends, Midnight
All dressed up and nowhere to go Saturday night? Legends is hosting Halloween Hip Hop night and in the words of their Web site it will be “like every other hip hop night but better: this one has costumes.” And what could be better than great music and fun costumes? Come with all your friends and your most inspired outfit. The music promises to be good and if past hip hop nights are any indication, everyone will be there. Plus, there is nothing better than dancing with a mysterious stranger in a gorilla costume. In short, this is a great way to end an epic Halloween weekend.
